At the tender deadline, Trevor Gott was one of three players to be non-tendered by the Brewers. The other two players were Jandel Gustave and Luis Perdomo. It did not take long for Gott to find a new home. He has signed a contract with the Seattle Mariners.

Gott was projected to make $1.4MM in arbitration this offseason. The exact details of his new contract with the Mariners are unknown at this time. We do know that it is a major league deal. Gott also has no minor league options remaining.
Heading into what would be his only season with the Brewers, they really liked his cutter and they wanted him to throw it more often. The results ended up being an up and down season. Ultimately, he had a 4.14 ERA over 45.2 innings pitched. He missed some time due to multiple trips to the injured list.
The Brewers have already replaced Trevor Gott in their bullpen.
Matt Arnold has been busy adding pitchers this offseason. Internal prospects Cam Robinson and Abner Uribe figure to be in the mix for some bullpen innings. Pitchers Tyson Miller, Javy Guerra, Janson Junk, and Elvis Peguero are all new 40-man roster additions. Adam Seminaris, acquired in the Hunter Renfroe trade, is not on the 40-man roster.
Going forward, the Brewers will be able to get by without Gott in their bullpen. There are a lot of new pitchers on the staff with intriguing pitch arsenals. All of these new additions are also cheaper and have multiple minor league options remaining.
